An Introduction to Equine
Nutrition Clinic will be presented
by the University of Maryland
Equine Extension Team on Satur-
day, November 1. Instructors for
the day include the University of
Maryland's own Dr. Amy Burk and
Dr. Charlie Apter, Dodon Farm's
Erin Pittman, and Dr. Justin Sobota
of South Mountain Equine.
Through a combination of
lectures and demonstration, equine
professionals and casual horse en-
thusiasts alike will gain a basic un-
derstanding of the equine digestive
anatomy, nutritional requirements,
and how to manage nutritionally
related disorders. During demon-
strations, students will learn to
body condition score a horse, accu-
rately assess feed weight and for-
age quality, and evaluate a ration.
Anyone is welcome to register; no
experience is necessary.
The clinic will run from 8:30
am to 4 pm at the University of
Maryland campus in College
Park, MD. The course fee is $40
and includes course materials and
lunch. Register online at ume-
